foundation paper piecing

I finally did it!!! I gave paper piecing a try. So far I only finished two blocks and I really love how precise all the seams are, and no cut off corners, either. This was my first block (I used Tamiko's template)

I made a kidlet using this tutorial and turned my wonderfully pointy block into a handy pocket.

My second block is this one
I was thinking of turning it into a giant pincushion, or maybe another kidlet ?!?!

I found the process of making a paper pieced block a little cumbersome and I used a lot more fabric than I would have otherwise, but the final result definitely won me over. I'm hoping to spend more time on paper piecing this weekend. I'll let you know how it went.

Have a wonderful and creative weekend, everyone. Svetlana
